Roadmaps for starting a Q Place - These helpful roadmaps lay out the process of starting a single Q Place (in four stages) or a Q Place ministry (in five phases).
Formats for your Trial Meeting - The first meeting is always the most intimidating, but it can also be one of the most exciting. These tried-and-true formats will take away the guesswork.
Bible Study Discussions - Format is helpful, but you need topics for discussion. These discussions will give you content options and help you guide the flow of conversation in a positive direction.
Tough Questions Discussions - If your group isn't ready to study the Bible initially, that's okay! When this happens it's often because participants have tough spiritual questions that need to be explored in a safe environment. This is why we call it a "Q Place" ... the "Q" is for questions. Following these guidelines will help you facilitate your group's discussion through these waters.
Resources for Common Challenges - Many groups face external challenges like providing childcare. Sometimes a certain participant monopolizes the discussion. Or you may have someone who never speaks. Check out Childcare and Monopolizers & Onlookers for best practices to deal with these challenges.
